The 2012 Navy SEAL Memorial Challenge aka “Murph Day 2012”

In honor of Medal of Honor winner Lieutenant Michael Murphy and all fallen veterans,
CrossFit Austin joins gyms nationwide to host

“Murph Day 2012” on Saturday, June 16th.

Proceeds will go to the Navy Seal Foundation.
A donation, of any size, is required to participate.
All supporters and spectators are welcome to donate, as well!

The competition will consist of completing the workout “Murph,” named in honor Lieutenant Michael Murphy:

The WOD:

1 mile Run
100 Pull-ups
200 Push-ups
300 Squats
1 mile Run
*For time.

Divide the pull-ups, push-ups, and squats as needed. Start and finish with a mile run. If you’ve got a twenty pound vest or body armor, wear it!

This workout was one of Mike’s favorites and he named it ‘Body Armor.’ From here on it will be referred to as ‘Murph’ in honor of the focused warrior and great American who wanted nothing more in life than to serve this great country and the beautiful people who make it what it is.
